When we do good unto others, we sow seeds that will bear good fruits for us as well, and it will come back to us when we are in need of help. If you are wondering why you are unhappy, feeling empty and dissatisfied, look at what you are doing for other people; if you make other people happy, happiness will come back to you.
Doing good things for others doesn’t mean you have to do something big and drastic; sometimes it can be small meaningful things. What about making an extra sandwich tomorrow and giving it to a homeless person before or you go to work or after? Or maybe som dinner leftovers?
